Clean on the whole, don't like seeing black/germs in the silicone round baths and showers though, a little bit of bleach would not go amiss.
Beds OK
TV worked fine
Kitchen was equipped well enough
Quiet location
Good if you are working away and want something more than a hotel room

I went to Edinburgh for my birthday with friends. Apartment was great other than some rusty cutlery and car park never locked even though you get a key to use it. However, we found out we paid double the asking price. We spoke to the receptionist who was unhelpful. Manager offered a pent house suite for our return but we would not go to Edinburgh again just to have this offer, the manager has never replied since. Strongly advise to go elsewhere if you want good service. There is literally another hotel round the corner from these apartments.

After a horrible experience after our 4 hour drive from Manchester at another vile hotel in Edinburgh we left and went on laterooms.com and found these apartments. The staff were very helpful and friendly. Had a fantastic view of the Royal Yaught Brittania! The bus was every 10 minutes into town, bus stop right outside the apartments. Asda round the corner. great location! The apartment was great with everything you need! Plus free underground parking and free WIFI Beds were very comfy! not had a nights sleep like that in years! Almost didnt want to get out to explore Edinburgh :-) highly recommend it!

We stayed here while visiting family in Edinburgh over Christmas. We usually stay in a hotel or B&B but found this worked well - everyone could relax, and there was no need to share a bedroom with our teenage son! Everything was clean, and well organised, staff were friendly and helpful despite having to work over the festive season. Our apartment had great views of the Forth and the city. There is a big supermarket at the end of the road so no problem about shopping, and all the cooking utensils we needed.A bit out of the way if you are visiting Edinburgh for the first time, but cheaper, and the city centre places we looked at all had expensive parking as well as higher room rates.

Room Tip: Worth asking for an apartment room with a view!

Pros: good value if you book in advance given Edinburgh is expensive place to stay, excellent service from reception, spacious, clean, all you need, en-suite plus extra bathroom in 2bed apartment, nice bedding, wonderful view of harbour, near Royal Yacht Britannia and Ocean Terminal shopping etc, frequent bus service to centre (No.10), free secure parking beneath apartments, free wifi, dvd player

Cons: bit far out of centre (30 mins bus journey in heavy traffic), not luxurioius, need to take your own toiletries, need to take own milk/breakfast stuff etc (do provide tea, coffee, sugar), small tv in ours.

The Royal Yacht Britannia is fantastic for 2-3hours – I’d recommend the deck cafe for lunch too!!

ps remember to take photo ID.

Room Tip: Recommend room with harbour view.

The location is excellent and the views are . Best of all are the staff. Efficient and well-organised. We have used them before several times through different ownerships and they are infinitely better than they were many years ago. Parking is easy, the buses up to the city are frequent although a bit of a nuisance because they don't run back from the city late at night - get off at Ocean Terminal and walk or hop a cab. If you don't mind living outside the biz of Edinburgh these are ideal.
